The Cartiers

As historian Diana Scarisbrick writes in the book’s foreword, “Many books have been written over the years on Cartier, but none have delved so deep into the true story of the family behind the firm…. although the exhibitions on Cartier over recent decades have shown so many beautiful objects, almost all the people most responsible for designing, making, and selling them have remained in the shadows. Now the veil has been lifted and the real story of the creation of Cartier has finally emerged.”
